HONG KONG: Fifty—nine Singaporeans overseas are eligible to cast their votes on Saturday in the Punggol East by—elections.
A small number of Singaporeans based in Hong Kong voted at the Consulate—General office in Admiralty.
The office is open from 8am to 8pm Singapore/Hong Kong time.
Victor Liow, a Punggol East resident who runs a family business in Guangzhou, made a special two—hour train journey to Hong Kong to cast his vote.
Mr Liow said: "Overall, I just hope that they can finish up the Rivervale Plaza as soon as possible.
"(I also hope) they build more child—care (centres in the area) because it’s quite a big problem. My brother and sister are staying there and they had some problems previously finding a childcare centre for their kids."
The Singapore Consulate in Shanghai was another of the 9 polling stations worldwide where overseas Singaporeans cast their ballots.
A handful of voters arrived after doors opened at 8am.
Ballots will be flown back to Singapore overnight.
